Healthy Hummus Pinwheels


Whether you need of a fast appetizer, a nutritious afternoon snack, or a fun option for lunch boxes, these healthy hummus pinwheels could be the perfect answer. I love how you can switch up the flavor of hummus for a completely different vibe, and even use different veggies, based on the season or what you have on hand. I’ve included some of our favorite options in the recipe. We originally shared this many years ago, but have added more information to this post!

Special Diet Notes: Hummus Pinwheels

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, optionally gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free, optionally soy-free, vegan, vegetarian, and optionally food allergy-friendly. Note that some hummus varieties do use soybean oil. Choose the tortillas that work best for your dietary needs.

For grain-free hummus pinwheels, there actually are grain-free “tortillas” products, such as these coconut wraps. Since they do tend to be smaller, you may need to use 3 or 4 wraps.

  1. I am embarrassed to have to ask for this additional information, but I must because I am confused about your instructions in steps 2 & 3. It appears that this is not a straight forward situation of spreading your ingredients on a tortilla and rolling it up. Please elaborate on what you mean in steps 2 & 3. Pictures of those steps would be even better!

    • You do spread on the hummus, but the other ingredients are bulky, so you don’t really want to spread them out on the tortilla. You gather them to one side and then begin rolling so they are in the middle of your roll.
